times. greg: a wild standoff there. law of the land says that gay marriage is legal and it is her job to issue marriage licenses and she said no to prospective gay married couples. all right, what else? the pope is coming to town, in about three weeks it is a big deal. more opportunities to see him or more opportunities to see him going through slowly central park. if you want tickets you can get them or try to get them via 311 system. i think i have to watch this one on tv. it is a pretty serious turning. >> closest that we're going to get to him. greg: how are you doing teresa? >> good, how are you? ferlg rosanna scotto hasn't called in nobody knows where she is. here's a clue. a sighting after isaiah thomas and michael kane and richard

[laughter] anyway. enjoy the time off that's what you're supposed to do. show you what's happening around tristate region opinion another hot and sticky one. fog out there too teresa, and greg. we have dense fog there's a statement just a little statement from the national weather service be aware of some patchy dense fog out there in long island. primarily nassau and suffolk county. three quarters in islip but some place it comes down to a quarter mile or less. look at belmar down to zero u right now look out for fog in coastal locations. that's probably one of our few weather challenges that we have for you today. we've got 75, down in central park right now. 72 newark. 58 degrees in sussex. 57 degrees in monticello. dew points are also on the higher side making it sticky. feels like it's 65 degrees out at 65 a degree dew points out at central park. 68 degree dew point at newark. generally speaking it might be a little bit drier than what we
had yesterday but still not so comfortable around the tristate region. mainly clear sky and that continues to pump up that heat and humidity from southeastern states. as far as storms go nothing happening right now. i don't think we're going to see a whole heck of a lot happening during daytime here. maybe an isolated storm but for the most part another dry day to us again. 85 midday. high temp up to 9 hotter than that because we have the humidity going for you for next couple of days. your high up to 92 tomorrow. and then become door cold front comes through. that will bring in cool erm temps with a shower risk at you late thursday into early friday. but yeah high of 82 friday an saturday will feel pretty good for us. let's bring in ines check out the roads an rails camera shots giving us fog. what's up ines? >> seeing that fog that you're talking about. then we have construction both directions by victory boulevard. late running construction eastbound traffic here, past
victory boulevard jammed back to the goethals bridge and west shore and westbound side also moving slow. other problems long island, the l.i.e. two issues an accident by 106, 107 this is eastbound. then another accident eastbound, it is onramp to the northbound seaford oyster bay expressway. this one on our cameras l.i.e. by 106, 107. blocking hov lane eastbound side so traffic moving slow. rubber necking delays. van wyck through q garden interchange combination of that construction zone delay, and also an accident past jackie robinson parkway. problems. amtrak power problem in one of the east river tunnels. so westbound trains canceled as well as delayed up to 30 minutes between jamaica and penn station wood side and pen station they have that suspended now elemented service between penn station is and jamaica so e train cross honoring penn station as well as 7 train at flushing.
so two and three trains a little an option penn station to atlantic terminal. metro-north new jersey transit and path trains doing fine. teresa an greg. >> what happened at a dak center? new jersey? two of the workers were orchestrating fights between kids they were supposed to be taking care of. making them fight each other and then documenting putting online. >> pushing, shoving each other these kids are young four to six years old. and now two form earl workser there are facing charges. let's go to kerry drew she joins us now from cranford, new jersey outside that day care center. good morning, kerry. >> good morning to both of you here outside the light bridge academy day care facility in cranford, new jersey. it just opened up a couple of minutes ago at 7:00 this morning, and about you can a steady stream of cars in the parking lot parents showing up to drop their kids off as usual. two form earl employees have been arrested both now facing child abuse charges. authorities say they forced kids

>> never has a chair been so heralded but this is one on which pope francis will sit at madison square garden on september 25th this morning timmy cardinal dolan will unveil it for the world to seed at the world's most famous arena. the chair when they built in westchester is humble like the holy father himself. pope francis sought to make the catholic church inclusive and welcoming and to that end, the vatican announced from december this year and december of next referred holy year of mercy priests have the power to forgive what the church calls, quote, sin of abortion. the vatican is not changing a little opposition to abortion but this is a significant step considering 40 announcement only bishops could grant for abortion. tmpg abortion for most women is a terrible decision, and he is trying to reconcile them with
the church as quickly as possible. and to invite them back in. >> his motorcade will ride through central park before the mass at the garden. thousands are expected to line the fruit so they can see the pope face-to-face. the city announced that free procession. you can apply for tickets online or by calling 311 starting tomorrow, through monday. prchg now new york state residents can apply for two tickets apiece in that online lottery. winners will be announced on september 10th if you would like more information we have it all laid out for you at "fox 5 ny".com. that is the latest live from st. pat this morning. greg and teresa back to you. greg: another look at the poem's chair. he's going to sit in this chair made in yonkers. could use a cushion and slack.

>> they captured that encountinger good morning to both of you. small town clerk in kentucky has a date with a federal judge after refuses to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. here's the problem she's defying a u.s. supreme court ruling. >> under whose authority -- due to her christian beliefs not reusing licenses sued by two gay couples. most barricaded after a last ditch request for a delay by the supreme court yesterday morning. next. >>she has a right to her belief but we're talking about the law right now. i have beliefs too but i would right. >> christianity is not something that we're doing -- we can't go against who we are. >> davis is refusing to resign
and can't be fired because she's elected official and appear in federal court tomorrow and potentially face steep fines as well as jail time if the judge finds her in contempt. so we'll be keeping an eye on that a lot of protesters outside of court tomorrow morning. back to both of you. >> stay on that story for a moment. thank you liz as we look at kim davis her mother had that job before she did for 37 years elected in january. can we take a look at her in the showdown in kentucky. there are few very ways to get out of office. impossible l to impeach her she was elected she can't be fired at this point. >> issuing marriage licenses is one of the tenants of that job. one of the main duties of the clerk. >> every job -- that is public you take an oath to support the defend the constitution. so i heard from one seeking a marriage license, they kind offed mire admire her standpoint but
looks look at this point it is illegal. >> we having out there that's been our main issue out there with the weather for the morning commute. it has been out in nassau and suffolk county so look out for patchy dense fog that takes visibility numbers down to a quarter mile or half mile in islip. down to zero in belmar affecting jersey shore coast as well. elsewhere things pretty good but on warm and statisticky side here in the tristate. right now 75 central park with partly cloudy sky winds from the south 5 miles per hour. another warm and a humid start to the day. our dew points are also pretty high again. a little more cloud cover down to the south but nothing producing rain for the time being. it is a quiet day as far as that is concerned. in fact, quiet for a little while. high pressure locked in here over the tristate. humidity is still pumping up some decent amounts of moisture for us here. but there will be back door cold front through the area some time
late thursday i should say into friday morning. that's when we'll have another chance of a few scattered shores. but today after some patchy morning fog temps make it up to 85 midday and a high of about 91. through next five days high of 92 for you tomorrow. still humid, but then that back door cold front comes on by and that will bring us scattered showers at that time and then cooler temps in the days to follow. holiday weekend looking fantastic. by the way, i want to send out a congratulations, happy 25th anniversary to my pals gina and robi anniversary on the 31st hope you have a fantastic one and wedded bliss. all right let's bring in ines rosales, and see what's going on long island railroad, what a problem. >> it is mike and we got the latest update right now. this just came in long island railroad, the trains are averaging westbound 60 minute delay. there was some power problems in the east river tunnel, amtrak related so trains on average 60 westbound, and also cancelationings. try to plan ahead.

it is called a hoover board. hi, everyone. teresa: you are getting more confident with that. mike: that is when the problems begin. greg: mike woods is going to ride it to weather center. it is the coolest thing in the world. mike, how would you describe it? mike: it is like a segway, but you don't have the handel bars. it is some what of a similar idea. it goes like 10 miles per hour? greg: yes, really, i should be wearing a helmet. teresa: you remind me of, remember the jetsons, remember rosie, the robot. she had wheels. she was doing the house hold chores and making dinner. greg: mike, how much instruction
did i give you, like five minutes. mike: yes. he says put this on one side. left foot up. go for it. see. you are on your own. mike: all right. teresa: there you go. it is like parallel parking. greg: mike, you are awesome. mike: not bad. here is what to expect for the weather. we have the father here and he can bless me if something goes wrong. the heat wave is likely to continue for the tristate region for the next couple of days. the temperatures high up near 90 degrees. friday and beyond closer to normal here. for labor day weekend, things
are looking better. oh, boy. we have air quality alerts in effect for parts of the tristate. when it comes to coastal sections of connecticut, we have air quality alert. high levels of ozone. the temperatures are warm. warm and sticky at the same time. we are looking at the radar and satellite, mainly clear skies -- [laughter]. greg: mike, you are awesome. do a 360. mike: i'm showing up. i'm feeling like greg kelly. wow. so any way, now i'm dizzy. it is a decent looking day. it is hot and humid. we have a cold front coming into town and trying to kick up the
thursday night. uv index is 7. high temp up to 91. i made it through. the highs in the 90s today and tomorrow and then back down to 80s. not to the future. i made it through. you have serious stuff. ines: so uch many is going on with long island rail road. power problems in the east river tunnel and service is suspended in and out of penn station. terminating at jamaica and wood terminal. platforms. we have video in. this is video from jamaica station. everyone is looking into what to do and where to go.
she was trying to take an e train. everyone trying to get to the stairs, trying to get some where or to work. jessica one of the reporters, also at jamaica station, look at the congestion they are dealing with. wuf the subways alternating. there could be delays with all of the congestion. now to the maps, we have problems on the roads as well. the staten island expressway is backed up because of late running construction. the delays going back to gothels. if you are driving to work, the l.i.e. west bound is actually doing okay. mostly delays on the eastbound side. the normal delays by queens boulevard. we have problems on the l.i.e. eastbound.
that is an accident blocking lanes. just the hov lanes are getting through. back to you. greg: all right. thank you. pope francis is coming to new york city in two and a half weeks now, and he's making news along the way. a special letter issued this week and offering forgiveness of what many thought in the church was unforgivable, having an abortion abortion. we are bringing in father jonathan morris, he's a fox 5 contributor and a priest, as you can see and has a parish in the bronx. >> there is no such thing as unfore give bl sin. yes, a lot of people come up to me and other priests or pastors
and say i know i can never be fore given because i had an abortion. but i can't walk into the church, the roof will fall down because i'm a sinner. the church is for sinners. the pope is saying in case there is doubt, anybody that walks into a confessional and asking for forgiveness of sin, it is a moment to do that, it is a great moment to say i want to begin again. teresa: father, is this only in the year of mercy? >> anybody asking god for forgiveness god hears and forgives, right, but there is confusion, there is confusion with the interpretation of the cannon law. my interpretation and most is
that any priest could about a solve you from the sin of aboshes before this. in the old cannon law, going back was going to the bishop. this clears it up and pope francis being pope francis. >> greg: what about the controversy, there are the catholics and i'm hearing that some are not terribly, pleased with this message. there are mixed feelings about this. >> yes, you will see people yelling at me and the pope. the idea is they are concerned that the pope is saying it is not that bad of a sin, aboshes is not so bad. that is not what he's doing. he's saying all sin is forgivable, god is so big and so good.
if there is a confusion, now there isn't confusion. on the flip side of that, with the controversial, this is something that is also appealing to younger set of catholics. it is following the messages that the pope released, tolerating same-sex marriage and allowing divorced people back to the church and receiving comun yun. >> it is classic pope francis ks come how many, the church is for everyone. no sin bigger than god's mercy. >> all right. >> thank you. >> i am hoping to use the hover board for the homily this sunday and going down the aisles. >> greg: if you would allow it, that is okay. on marble, right. up and down the aisle. i will practice.
